Issue Six : Summer 2016

Heat. How is it that one little word can be so transcendent, so polarizing—and can mean so many things? A noun, a verb, a feeling, a sign. Heat is representative of both anger and love, pressure and comfort; under the right circumstances, its effects can be inspiring or devastating. Transformative and preservational. Its associations can also be of foreboding, of fear, hell—even of the underworld—as much as the friendly, the inviting, and of paradise. The surprising complexity of such a simple word is what inspired this issue—dedicated to exploring heat’s many personalities.

We started with a few simple ideas that seemed appropriate for summer—barbecues, beach vacations, and even bourbon. But we quickly found we could examine a multitude of hot topics within its parameters.
